The Animated Chalkboard 2006: Motion 1
written by Richard Tarara
This zip file download contains a package of 22 Windows-based physics animations on velocity, acceleration, friction, momentum, rotational frames, and more. It was created as an Animated Chalkboard series, allowing educators to freely display the animations within their own presentations. Many animations plot motions graphically as they are shown.  The folder includes explicit instructions on how to integrate the animations in Power Point presentations.

Please note that this resource requires MS-Windows.
